After the Yankees outscored the Red Sox 24-6 in taking the first two games of the series, the Red Sox lineup and Jon Lester salvaged the finale of the three-game set, taking a 9-3 win on Sunday night. With the win, the Sox returned to .500.
Ahead 1-0 in the second inning, the Sox broke the game open by plating five runs in the third. The rally included four two-out runs: a David Ortiz run-scoring double, Adrian Beltre’s two-run double and an RBI single from Jeremy Hermida.

Rajon Rondo finished with 29 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists in one of the most spectacular playoff performances in team history as the Celtics evened their series at two games apiece with the Cavaliers with a 97-87 win on Sunday at TD Garden. Rondo's statistical line was among the best ever in NBA playoff history. Only Oscar Robertson (32 points, 19 rebounds, 13 assists on March 26, 1963) and Wilt Chamberlain (29-36-13 on April 11, 1967) posted better numbers.

After the Celtics built a 54-45 lead at halftime, the Cavaliers took a brief 70-69 lead late in the third quarter. But the Celtics responded and built a fourth-quarter lead of 12 points, only to have the Cavaliers cut it to two points. But the Celtics held off the Cavaliers and assured the series of going at least six games. The Celtics held LeBron James...
Oakland left-hander Dallas Braden threw a perfect game Sunday against visiting Tampa Bay, the first perfect game of the 2009 season. Braden struck out six and threw 109 pitches on the way to the 4-0 win. Braden (4-2), who retired former Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler for the final out of the game on a ground ball to shortstop, gained a small measure of fame earlier this season for taking offense to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez' decision to cut across the mound during an Oakland-New York game.
